Death of the Planet of the Apes will tell the story of the final days of George Taylor
We've had much of the story of the rise of the apes, the fall of man and the what happens when George Taylor finds himself flung into the future, but we never actually found out what happened to Taylor after that. Thankfully, we will soon be able to find out in the new novel from Andrew E. C. Gaska - Death of the Planet of the Apes will pick up the story following Taylor's last on screen appearance in Beneath the Planet of the Apes.
Death of the Planet of the Apes will be available from 13th November from Titan Books.
Discover the official, never-revealed adventures of astronaut George Taylor, from the movie Planet of the Apes, to be released in the 50th anniversary year of the first Planet of the Apes movie.
In Beneath the Planet of the Apes, Col. George Taylor (played by Charlton Heston) disappears into the Forbidden Zone, only to return in the film’s climactic scene. For forty-eight years, the question has remained—what happened to Taylor?
Finally the truth is revealed. Beneath the irradiated wasteland, the astronaut faces the deadly wonders of a gleaming city and its inhuman citizenry. On the surface the gorillas—led by General Ursus—launch an all-out assault to exterminate the savage animals known as humans.
And out in the desert, the chimpanzee scientist Milo strives to reconstruct the spacecraft that brought the humans from the past. Events spiral at a breakneck pace, with the fate of a world at stake.
